Oops...It was Lisa De Cazotte Nancy Lee Grahn Was Talking About!





Update: Egg meet face. It looks like Nancy Lee Grahn's daughter Kate has more than one producer Godmother! Grahn was tweeting about the hiring of Lisa De Cazotte at Days of Our Lives. I guessed wrong and reader Charleyhorse had it right! #Falls on sword.

I was just about to settle in for a quiet Saturday night when one of Daytime Confidential's readers/listeners asked me on Facebook if I knew anything about the "big soap news" General Hospital star Nancy Lee Grahn tweeted was set to break on Monday. Of course, being the good (read: nosey) soap blogger I am, I went to La Grahn's Twitter handle and found this tantalizing teaser:

Very excited about soap news about to be broken Monday. I LOVE the person that this is about. She is Kate's Godmother. That's all I'll say

Without much to go on, I went to Google and typed "Nancy Lee Grahn," "Kate" and "Godmother" and came upon an older tweet from Grahn wishing her daughter's godmama happy birthday and also dropping that said g-parent worked on the hit CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother as an executive producer.

Happy bday Pinny My bff, Kate's Godmother ( Exec prod, director, emmy nominee of How I met ur Mother)U've never been older than today

So, then I went to IMDB and looked up all of HIMYM's showrunners and landed on a Pamela Fryman, who, whaddya know, got her start in television on my fav-o-rite soap opera ever Santa Barbara, where Grahn first shot to fame as Julia Wainright Capwell! I also Googled Pamela Fryman's b-day and found a HIMYM crew member tweeting a "Pam Fryman" a happy birthday wish on the same exact date Grahn had wished her pal "Pinny" one!

Now I can't swear that Pinny and Pamela Fryman are one in the same, or that said "soap news" is about Fryman, but I have managed to connect Fryman to Grahn in less than six degrees of soap-er-ation. Wonder what the big news is? ;-)

the only soap news I care about would be TPTB getting axed for the sexism they portrayed by firing Lexi Ainsworth.

still bitter over it.

I know all! Wink Hey, Pam Fryman is a seriously successful primetime producer/director. I'm sure she appreciates the soaps but why on Earth would she get involved with them now. Makes no sense. Jamey guessed wrong, that's all.

@CharleyHorse I didn't guess. Nancy Lee said the news involved her daughter Kate's godmother. Pamela Fryman is in fact, Kate's Godmother. Here's a quote from Nancy Lee's official website:

"I was with my friend, Pam Fryman, who is an assistant director on the show and is my best friend, and we were across the street at a hamburger place having lunch. We're always hysterical laughing when we're talking and I was eating my French fries and she said something to me that made me laugh, the French fry got stuck in my windpipe and at first you start coughing and people see you coughing and all of a sudden it lodged and everything was cut off, all my air, everything. It was turning blue. I just thought, I'm going to die. This is it. Because you do."

Here's another from her Facebook, wishing Pam good luck at the Emmys:

good luck to Kates Godmama Pam Fryman (Best Director nominee for HOW I MET UR MOTHER

Yes...well, trust me, you are right (and wrong) on your facts.

@Charleyhorse My facts? Nancy Lee tweeted soap news was going to break on Monday regarding her daughter Kate's godmother. Her daughter Kate's godmother is Pamela Fryman, who once directed Santa Barbara, and was an e.p. on HIMYM. What did I get wrong? LOL

@appleridge, Nancy Lee said "soap news," she never said daytime.

I will accept your apology Monday...if not sooner. Wink

@Charleyhorse What would have to apologize about? Pamela Fryman is NLG's daughter's godmother. NLG said the soap news involved Kate's godmother. I think I'm good. If there's no soap news regarding her, nothing I revealed is erroneous. Now you can feel free to disagree, but you won't make nasty pot shots, re: "It takes a village," because they will be zapped.

Jamey maybe she is gonna exec a night time soap. NLG seems really Jazzed so its probably really good scoop

Sorry No need for me or anyone 2 apologize for giving an educated guess based on Jamey's facts of who this woman is and that she worked at SB with NLG

Plus NLG is excited so I thought well maybe she's excited that she gets to work with her again but this time at GH.

Not that big of a leap to go there but I never said it was FACT so yes it could be something totally different

Like I said we will know Monday 4 sure

I am not making pot shots and if it came across that way, I apologize. And I was kidding about an apology. Your guess is a valid one but you will see that there is more to some things than what you research on the internet. I applaud your website and your tireless effort to keep us all informed. Truly. Keep up the good work!

I don't think this will be anything relevant to Daytime Soaps. Probably a primetime "soap" or something that none of us are going to care about.

I love your detective work. That was on a Bo & Hope level (current level, not Higley level). I don't see her wanting anything to do with a daytime soap so I think NLG is just blowing smoke, as she does 99% of her time spent on Twitter.

I am praying this is about someone taking over for the sorry writing staff at Y&R.

I do think that it has to do with soap other wise NLG wouldn't have said anything. I believe she is either replacing Sweeny, or Jill Phelps. My guess is Phelps.

GH needs a miracle. They need to go back to hospital. It is their only chance. I do not and will not watch Carly/Jason/Sonny. For me they are not GH. To be honest, I think the show is so far gone that it is useless. Ten years ago they should have gone back to their roots.

Sadly I don't really think anything will work. Too many rumors out there about July.

charleyhorse if you know something why not break the news? if Jamey's guess is correct, you have egg on your face, if Jamie is wrong, it is not because you knew something he didn't, it is because he guessed wrong. The only way for you to be bmoc is to break the news. so spill it!

Lisa De Cazotte (new Co-EP at Days) is also friends with both Nancy Lee Grahn and Pamela Fryman (from tweets) so the news could be about her coming to Days.

I am reasonably certain Ms. Grahn refers to the situation at Days. Although I have been wrong once or twice.

She said it had to do with her daughters God mother who is Pamela Fryman
